Testing for Fungicide Drift in Cereal Rye Trials

Published Oct 20, 2016

In a Nutshell

Two farmers tested Spray strips and No-Spray control strips of cereal rye for fungicide residue. This project was a secondary project within “Fungicide and Plant Growth Regulator Effect on Cereal Rye Production” (Gailans et al., 2016).

Key Findings

At Sieren’s farm, no propiconazole residue was found above the detectable limit of 0.05 ppm in No-Spray control strips. At Sloan’s farm, metconazole residues of 0.02 ppm were found in both control strip samples, compared to the 1.30 ppm baseline residue level in the sprayed sample.
